I tend to use generics IF they have the same product available. Sometimes I splurge on brand names if there's a new feature that I love.
For instance, I recently switched to Aldi's deodorant (when they started offering a scent other than Baby Powder - I hate Baby Powder!) from Suave. It seems to flake more and leave white marks on my clothes. I guess I got spoiled by the invisible kinds, I'll probably be switching back when my current supply runs out, and wait for Aldi's to offer the invisible kind.
I also am switching to Aldi's maxi pads now that they have the thin maxis; I can't make myself wear the bulky ones anymore!
Basically, the brand means pretty much nothing to me; I look for the features of the product and decide if the differences are worth paying more for.
